Parker had had a subsidiary in the UK since at least , as shown by old ads. First there was only marketing and a selling force. The setup worked fine, until World War II, when shipping became increasingly more risky. Some sources indicate that Parker already from time to time had had a co-operation with the Valentine Pen Company, in Newhaven, starting in the late ‘s. But the company had failed to become really successful in their own right. Part of the answer was probably that they never concentrated on one specific model, instead they would accept orders of maybe a dozen or two pens, a strategy that proved uneconomical. According to David Shepherd in his book Parker Duofold, Valentine in even had to publicly apologise to the UK pen maker Conway Stewart for a patent infringement, albeit an unintended one. Note the cap on the bottom pen. It was of course convenient, as well as profitable, for Valentine to produce pens that was very similar to the Parker Duofolds.

Parker was founded by George Stafford Parker in Early Parker pens had the unique patented “Lucky Curve” feed, which was an elongated conventional feed that curved back to touch the barrel wall. Supposedly this helps draw ink back into the pen when it wasn’t in use. Parker used the Lucky Curve into the s as a competitive market differentiator in a crowded pen market. Unlike most major manufacturers of the era, Parker largely stayed away from the lever fill mechanism.
Although they did produce some examples of lever fillers, they prefered their own homegrown mechanisms. During the s and s, this was the button fill mechanism, which used a button hidden behind a blind cap to compress the bar that the lever would have compressed. The Duofold, introduced around , formed the top end of the Parker line through the s. The Duofold was a large imposing pen initially released in a bright red color with squared off ends.

Parker was enjoying such tremendous success with their Duofold line that they were afraid to mark the first Jade pens as ‘Duofold’ for fear they wouldn’t hold up and would subsequently hurt the Duofold line.
